Default The Honeymooers - Lost Episodes 1951-1957 - The Complete Restored Series DVD Review

One of the most time-tested series of classic television is The Honeymooners. In the 1955-1956 season, the series aired for 39 episodes on CBS. But the larger legacy of the classic series, though, includes over 100 "lost" episodes that aired as skits on The Jackie Gleason Show on CBS and Calvacade of Stars on the DuMont Network. In the 1950s, 121 of these skits were aired live on The Jackie Gleason Show, some running just a few short minutes and others lasting nearly the entire length of the episode. These weren't filmed to be preserved, but videotaped kinescopes were made for these episodes, and to this date, 107 of these 128 episodes exist. Many of these have aired in syndication over the past twenty five years, beginning in the middle 80s, as part of the syndication package for the series, although they air in haphazardly edited formats designed to fit the 22 minute standard syndication length. Now, for the first time ever, all 107 of the known existing sketches are available to view on home media, having been restored by the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Of the sketches included in MPI's new collection, 30 are new to DVD, and 18 haven't been seen since the original airing of the series.
